Physical therapy is vital to the recovery process. Surgery treats the anatomical issues related to your injury. Exercises and stretching reduce swelling and tension, and help to strengthen the injured muscles. In some instances, physical therapy can be an alternative to surgery. Working through exercises and stretches can help to prevent future injuries and pain in other parts of your body. During your physical therapy treatment, you will learn how to perform everyday tasks the proper way.
Many patients believe that physical therapy exercises are painful. Our physical therapists will modify exercises to fit your needs and limit discomfort. If at any point you experience pain or discomfort, we modify the exercises to fit your needs.
Our Physical Therapists work with you to create a treatment plan that is customized to you and your daily routine. We are your partner in the recovery process, helping you return to that pain free feeling you felt before your injury.
